A friend had a workman at her house doing some work. He asked if he could use the phone. Yes you can its over there. He went to the phone which was on the wall and he just looked at it. She saw him just standing there and said its OK you can make your call. He then picked up the hand set and then poked his finger in each hole for the number. It was a rotory dial phone. He did not know how to work a dial phone. The new gen knows knowing.
